Antowyan Aikens–“It’s no games. There has been a lot of things that have been said. I worked hard. People look at me as a steppingstone. Anybody who trains and works with him, can not get on the ring with him. Just remember, I can fight! I know the type of support that I have, I put in the work. I am a natural 168-pound fighter, I am not coming up to 140. I want him to bring the fight. I have great boxing skills. I was born with the ability to perform.”

DeCarlo Perez–“I am very proud to be on this card. There has been a lot said, but the fight is here. I love this. I come here to fight. I am not responsible for what anyone says on social media.
